Volunteers enrich and enhance our community services but, what are the legal implications that organisations need to be aware of?
This session will highlight ‘best practice’ in providing a supportive volunteering environment while being aware of your statutory obligations in relation to:
- Employment law and volunteers
- Safe guarding
- Under 16’s and work permits
- Expenses and benefits
- Insurance and public liability
Questions you will be able to answer
- What is the legal status and implications of involving volunteers?
- Can under 16’s legal and safely volunteer with my organisation?
- When do volunteer expenses constitute employment law?
What others say…
- This is a new course. We look forward to receiving your feedback!
